Shadow Legend Voice Controls

I can't seem to get the voice controls to initialize... I check in Windows 10 and its recognizing my rift as a microphone properly, but nothing while in game...

This is a super cool feature, anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

    also, PLEASE tell me you can go back to an area... i accidental opened a green door in the 3rd or 4th area and it brought me to a new place and I can't figure out how to get back!! I still have much to do in the previous area!

    You need Win 10 v. 1803 or newer for voice recognition to work - I greatly dislike updating Win 10, so I have an older version and therefore can't get voice recognition to work. 

    Just in case: 

    Check Windows 10 Build Version
    1. Win + R. Open up the run command with the Win + R key combo.
    2. Launch winver. Simply type in winver into the run command text box and hit OK. That is it. You should now see a dialog screen revealing the OS build and registration information.
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    I don't remember the green door you mention exactly but in general you can't go back after specific and very frequent linear progression points. I too don't have voice working after it initially did work but I think it's a chore to have to say the whole text out lout anyway so I don't mind enough to investigate (though it would have been nice to have for the one-word riddle solutions for those doors since you can skip the dialogues even with it on so you could use it just for such instances).

    Can you use Voice Control with Windows in general? Have you tested it outside of the game?

    You can either click Text to talk to an NPC, or speak the words out loud. But the fun part is being able to barter with traders.

    I've been in my room shouting, "50 GOLD!" and then the dude replies, "How about 42?"

    And this is just a sneak preview of what's to come. I can't wait for full open-ended verbal communication with A.I. NPC's. There's another VR RPG that lets you cast spells by speaking them aloud.


    The future is coming, and it's a very vocal place.

    Just an FYI, the voice worked after I restarted my PC. Its been flawless since, so no idea what happened but probably not the games fault. And NO, you can not go back to previous areas, so I restarted the game. Just made it too the end boss but taking a break! 

    Game is awesome if a little short. Def recommend!
